Haberdasher's Jeston Bursary 2018-19

What is the Haberdasher's Jeston Bursary

The Haberdashers’ Company Jeston Charity was established by a will dated 1622 of Roger Jeston, a member of the Haberdashers’ Company. One of its objectives is “the relief of poverty at St Thomas’ Hospital”. The Company and King's College, London have agreed that the scheme will operate to help specified medical and dental students facing financial difficulty at Guy’s, King’s and St Thomas’ Faculty of Medicine.

There are five bursaries available of £1,000 each.
